The first time I tried Zyban, I was pregnant. It was awful. Caused upset stomach (as if morning sickness wasn't enough), left me feeling kind of 'out there', don't really know how to describe it. Needless to say, shamefully, I continued to smoke (My daughter is perfectly healthy, thank God).
Second time I tried it, I was pregnant with my son. This time, the doctor gave me something for the upset stomach and it helped a LOT. I was able to quit within two weeks and stayed quit for 10 months, no problem. For me it worked wonderful. I WOULD think about smoking, but then I'd just kinda roll my eyes, and think..."Nope..can't"
That was just out of habit, and mainly at the trigger times.
You'll notice I said 'quit for 10 months'...well, the hubby quit smoking too, but one day I found out he'd been smoking again. It started out as just smoking one on the weekend, and then one a day, and now I'm smoking again like I never quit.
I've tried again since, but I used the generic form of Zyban, and it didn't work. Or maybe it was because I wasn't pregnant and so it didn't affect me the same way, I don't know.
I am planning to quit again, and will try Zyban again, but right now... on induction... I don't think that would be a good idea!
I wish you the best of luck! It's great NOT smoking, and I kick myself every day for starting again. Even in ten months, I could breath better, things tasted better, I had more energy ...etc.
Good luck! And keep us posted! For me, when I quit, it kept me going to post every month that I'd made it without one.
